GOTCH MEETS "TERRIBLE TURK" IN CANADA t An Example of How the Full IN the season of 1905-6 Gotch had some thrilling and at times humor ous experiences in Canada, winning the international wrestling tourna ment at Montreal, Quebec and Ottawa An incident he will never forget was his encounter with a Turk grappler by the name of Karakanoff. This Turk had been hailed as about the fiercest thing that ever happened in the way of a wrestling demon. He had defeated several strong men In the tournament before Qotch appear ed on the scene. Gotch had heard of the dire things that would happen to him when he faced this mountain of grappling brawn from the Bosporus. It was not the Gotch habit to back away from danger, so he agreed to meet the "Terrible Turk," to see whether this wrestler were really half human as alleged. There was a rumor afloat that he would strangle Gotch. On April 6, 1906, they had it out In a packed pavilion at Sohmer's park, Montreal. The trouble for Karakanoff lasted Just 14 minutes. When Dr. Gadbols blew his little whistle announcing the start' of hos tilities the Turk advanced In menac ing fashion as though he might belong to the carnivorous species of the hu man family. Gotch, however, was not there to be eaten up. In Just about 16 seconds he discovered what the Turk did not know about wrestling. Then he dashed In, side-stepped a fierce as sault and brought Karakanoff to the 'mat with a waist hold. The Turk possessed one redeeming quality great strength. He lacked expert knowledge of wrestling, but was powerful. He could lift a ton, Gotch thought, but Gotch was not there to be lifted. After Karakanoff had struggled In vain to rise, he stretched out and waited for something to happen. Gotch decided to have some fun. He toyed with his victim, not to dlsap- MACK TO KEEP TEAM INTACT Wise Old Leader of Philadelphia Will Depend on His Veterans to Play Better This Year. Of all the American league man agers, Connie Mack probably will be the only one this season to line up the same team that came through for him last season. The wise old Philadelphia leader will stand pat with his veterans. Mack Edward T. Collins, last season had a great team and ex pects to have this same team play better ball this season.

He fastened on a hammerlock and brought back the Turk's arm until the crowd gasped, then relinquished the grip. Then he placed a full nelson, bent the big Turk almost double, but let him escape. Other holds followed In rapid succession. It was a splendid work out for Gotch, but not for Karakanoff. The Turk was looking around for a nice spot on which to "flop." He had had enough. Gotch, however, saved him that humiliation, forcing his shoulders to the mat with a reverse body hold in 11 minutes. The officials had trouble persuading the "Terrible Turk" to come back. He had been convinced. He was look ing about for his clothes. His mana ger finally shoved him back Into the arena and he came up as though walking to his doom. Gotch went In to see how quickly he could defeat him In the second bout, and slammed him to the mat with a resounding thud. Karakanoff was too frightened to wrestle. He was looking for some avenue of escape. Gotch sat up and the Turk leaped to his feet "I've had enough," he beckoned, as he walked away. Gotch caught him by a foot and tried to drag him back. No, thanks; no more for him. He was thoroughly convinced. Qotch sat down and smiled. He beckoned the Turk to return, but Mr. Turk did not pause In his flight He was hunting his clothes. Gotch could have the match, the money and the honor, but Karakanoff wanted to live In peace and quiet He wanted his hands for future use. That was the last Frank Gotch ever saw of Mr. Karakanoff. Is it any wonder there have been few Terrible Turks since Gotch be came champion? There Is only one who deserves the name and he came several years later. He is a Bulgar ian and his name is Mahmout.

Collins, second baseman, was born In Millerton, N. Y., May 2, 1887. He entered Columbia university in 1903, played short for the varsity nine In 1904, and captained the team in 1906. During the early part of the season of 1906 he played with the Rut land (Vt.) team and later was given a trial with the Athletics under the name of Sullivan. Collins returned to Columbia In 1907, received his degree and rejoined the Athletics under his right name. He spent most of his time on the bench that season, but in 1908 was given a regular Job at the second station, which he hag held ever since. Collins has hit over .300 for the last four seasons. His batting av erage for 1912 was .348 for 163 games. A(MSS- .spoktoon If Tom Jenkins goes through with his plan to come back to the mat Qotch may come back also.
